Yeah but that doesn't count since he missed Perron, Bergeron & Giroux

You pegged me wrong. I was and still am for the Markov signing. You don't let talent like that walk away and while Gauthier lost his gamble this season, the gamble on the contract is still up for debate until Markov returns or retires.

LOL at those who think DD will be traded.
Not this season anyway.

As for today, I watched the game partially (actually only the second half or so) and Subban was the only one who was really trying hard.

P.S.
This team is horribly coached.
Good for the next draft though.

Ya I too am still in favour of the Markov contract. I'm optimistic that we will turn it around faster than people think and Markov will be part of that. When people talk about all the money spent, I rarely see where they propose what other options we had to better spend the money. I do not think having Wiz around would have been good long term and again, the unpredictable nature of Markov's injury was in play. PG didn't KNOW this season was going to be bad injury-wise for Markov, it just turned out that way. Look at the Pens and Crosby. Imagine how freaked out they might be to have him signed for so many years and at such a high price. Point is, if he returns, it really doesn't matter if Sid missed that much time, he's still worth it. Over a span of three years, same goes for Markov. PG made the right decision there. Bad luck is bad luck. Markov will return and he will help the resurgent Habs and the 5 million lost this season would not have helped us in any way except perhaps having Wiz and again it's conjecture to think he would have a repeat of last season. The whole team was better on the PP last year, that's why we were good. I prefer to just forget this season and enjoy Markov for the next two (yeah, also conjecture, but Markov is an all-star, it's not a ridiculous assumption that he'll help us).

I can't believe RDS is actually replaying the game. Don't they care about ratings?

First time ever a team stopped playing for the FANS! Not the coach, not management but the fans. Can you blame them? History was made!

You're attacking one of the two guys that actually bring it every night? If anybody has a right to speak up and call out certain players or the entire team, it's Gorges and Cole.

I don't hate Desharnais as a person, but yeah I hate the media for pumping certain players tires when clearly they don't deserve it. I would love to have a Franco superstar on this team, and the city needs one badly. But go over the list of French players who've played for the habs in the last ten years... You can argue that every single one was at one point one of the most overrated players in the NHL.

Or they cheer him because he's our center with the most points (with his 2 wingers being #1-2) and he's the forward with the best +/- rating (and I agree that he is put in favorable match-ups, but he's doing great in them nevertheless).

But no of course, it's because of the name.

I'm sorry man, but Gorges has got to be the most overrated player we've ever had on this team. I strongly believe he has the worst shot in the NHL. So yeah I am going after him, because it's always the same old story with him. Habs lose, gorges always there to tell the media what they did wrong, but he states things that he can't do himself. I'm sure his teammates are annoyed of him for mouthing off when clearly he can't do any better himself.
